Yep!  The good news is that both Olaf and Matt have now given me permission
to use their copyrighted stuff.  Matt has indicated that he never intended
the copyright to restrict free use and distribution/modification of the
tools - it was just to prevent commercial sale.  So I'll do a new version
(which will probably start at 3.0 onwards), and we'll work out some sort of
GPL distribution/version.  Full source-code will be included.

Since the code is rather undocumented and a bit cluttered, I'll be tidying
up stuff where I peck around.  So for the short term it will be a bit
untidy - but eventually I hope to have it fully commented and documented.  I
have noted all the requests that have come in so far, and don't anticipate
any problems in quickly implementing most, if not all, of them.

I mean, if I can cope with Mario's code... I can cope with anything....
right, Mario?  ;)
